Writing Goals Poster and Stickers to Raise Standards in Writing

Writing Goals Poster and Stickers to Raise Standards in Writing

This poster has been used from EYFS to Year 4 as a way to raise attainment and encourage self-assessment and it has proven to be very effective. It has been particularly effective in EYFS. The poster is printed and displayed in the classroom and used each time children participate in writing activities to help them understand the features of their writing. When completing independent writing, these images are stuck into children’s books to remind them of their aims and also to self-assess their work at the end. We use Tickled Pink and Green for Growth but any system will work. Children then get a stick to match each target they have achieved. This pack includes A complete writing poster A simplified writing poster for younger children/less able. Ready to print stickers for each target Editable WALT and WILF with images to stick in children’s books If you would like the editable version of the poster, let me know once purchased and I can send it to you.

Talk! Drama! Reading skills! Grammar skills! Games! Writing an information text! In this three week non-fiction writing unit, children look at an information text (a poster about the now destroyed Brighton Chain Pier). Then they play with the text and create new sentences of their own, developing key Year 2 grammar skills. Finally they create an information text of their own (Brighton Palace Pier), applying the skills taught in the previous two weeks. Every resource is included and most are resources are differentiated 3 ways - there’s a lot of work here! You could easily swap the model for an attraction local to you. You could also swap the outcome to an attraction near you - the skills in this unit are all transferable.

This unit introduces new Y2 grammar concepts: I can use commas for lists. I can use questions, statements, exclamation and commands. I can use expanded noun phrases to describe and specify [for example, ‘the polished stones’]. I can add a chunk (clause) using ‘and’ (coordination) This unit introduces the following Y2 terminology: noun, noun phrase, statement, exclamation, command, adjective, verb, comma This unit introduces these Y2 composition objectives: I can write an information poster. I can plan or say out loud what I am going to write about. I can use new words (vocabulary). I can write my ideas in sentences (continued from Y1). I can make improvements and changes with the teacher or with my friends. I can re-read to check that my writing makes sense. I can proof-read to check my spelling and punctuation [Are the ends of my sentences punctuated correctly?] I can read aloud what I have written clearly and with expression. Reading skills : I can spot meaning breakdown. I can repair a meaning breakdown. Enjoy!
